As an organization we are committed to sharing information and ideas, meeting challenges together in a process grounded by the values of integrative medicine, supporting member institutions, and providing a national voice for the advancement of integrative principles. The Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health recognizes the opportunity to affect the direction, assumptions and outcomes of healthcare. The involvement of strong academic institutions and their representatives allows us to provide a forum for those committed to the values of integrative medicine. The Consortium will provide the cohesion necessary to maximize individual institutional efforts, and also move the field forward in a way that no one institution is able.
A transformed healthcare system promoting Integrative Medicine and Health for all.
